Beauty Obsessions

DSCN0154

Raise your hand if you beat your face even when you are going to be sitting in the house. Don’t be ashamed!! I do it all the time. There is nothing like thick brows, an even face, voluminous lashes, and a bangin’ lipstick no matter what you may have going on. Even if your outfit isn’t completely there, as long as your face and hair (and nails) are decent, no one can tell you anything! At least that’s how I feel about it!

Here are some of my beauty obsessions that I use practically on a daily basis:

  1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation (Shade 11.0)
  2. Mac’s Rebel Lipstick
  3. Make Up Forever’s Smoky Lash Mascara
  4. Mac’s Prolong Wear Concealer (NW40)
  5. Mac’s Mineralized Skin Finish (Deep Dark)
  6. Wet’n Wild’s Red Velvet Lipstick (910D)
  7. Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment (Clear)
  8. Mac’s Eyebrow Pencil (Spiked)
  9. Sigma’s Flat Kabuki Brush
  10. Loreal’s Voluminous Fiber Mascara

In case you wanted to know what the lipsticks look like, here are some swatches of each:

Although I love natural looking make up, I often get bored with nude lips. These two lipsticks really make my look pop. No matter what your skin tone is, trust that you will like both…At the very least, try the Wet’N Wild one, which is only $2 in CVS. You can’t beat that!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you have any questions about the products mentioned, please feel free to ask! xx…Kel

I thought that I would start my week (I was supposed to post this yesterday) by posting some pictures from my Instagram (IG) account. I’m sure I’ve already told you all how much I absolutely love this app! I believe its available on both iPhones and Androids now so you should definitely look into it if you haven’t already done so! A lot of what’s been going on in my world on a day-to-day basis is reflected on there so here are some pictures to sum up the past week or so on IG:

How cute are these custom made post-its and letter head? I ordered these, along with some blog business cards, from Vistaprint. Although the designs are a bit limited, I was really impressed with everything they can actually do (i.e. custom made pens, post-its, t-shirts, journals, web hosting, etc.). Check it out when you get the chance…

Remember when I did a post a little while back about turning my dining room into an office (Inspirational Spaces)? Well, I went and purchased a desk and ghost chair from ikea, and set my little office space up last weekend…I really love it. The color of the desk really brightens up the room. The nail polishes and leopard print coaster on the desk also add a super girly feel to it. Not to mention that weird desk lamp. If you would like for me to do a separate post on my office space just let me know…

I went a little crazy at Nordstrom over the past couple of weeks during the Anniversary Sale, and I purchased some lip glosses (that I really didn’t need). They are gorge though! The Chanel, Nars and Bobbi Brown glosses are the new ones in the picture above…and are all different from what I would normally choose for myself (fuschia/pink). Gotta step outside your comfort zone sometimes ladies!

As for the green ensemble, I’ve been looking for a trench vest for months!! I finally stumbled upon one in the Old Navy outlet at Arundel Mills last week. I went to the mall with my sister (hey Keisha!) and I was trying my best not to buy anything, but who can resist something purchasing something that they’ve been on the hunt for?! Certainly not me…I can’t wait to rock this baby!

Last, but certainly not least, my birthday was on Sunday, August 5th.  Outside of all the amazing birthday wishes and other things I received, I had to post this amazing home cooked meal! Stuff salmon with crab meat, scallops, shrimp and aspargus! Ah-Mazing! Feel great to now be a part of the 30 and over club! Lol…

Whelp, I think I’ve rambled on long enough. I hope you all have a lovely week and I will talk to you all soon! Smooches! XOXO

Organized Beauty: Make-Up

Having an abundance of make-up can easily get disorganized. Since I am on a mission to begin my year off right, I thought I would show how I am furthering my organization. Here is what the majority of my make-up looked like before I organized it into two drawers:

BEFORE ( A Mess!)

AFTER (Still a mess, but an improvement...Lol)

AFTER

Now I could probably organize these further, but honestly, I don’t care that much about make-up to do anything more with it…Lol…This is as good as it gets! I had to stack some things on top of each other mainly because I refuse to let my make-up go beyond these two drawers. As you can see, lip products and eye shadows are my weaknesses!

Here are some clear storage trays that you may find useful in organizing your own make-up collections (from the Container Store):

Lipsticks and Glosses

Brushes

Happy Organizing!! XOXO
